Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) is a common problem, and managing underarm sweat issues and the negative impact on your body, clothing, and self-confidence can be messy, time consuming, and costly. Botulinum Toxin injections can be used in adults to manage excessive sweating of the armpits by blocking the nerve impulses to the sweat glands, stopping them producing sweat. Your doctor will inject into the area affected and generally patients will see an improvement within the first week and the effect usually lasts, on an average, 7.5 months.

Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Syndrome
Botulinum Toxin injections can be an effective treatment to alleviate the pressue and jaw pain associated with TMJ. The masseter muscle tends to be very strong and prominent in patients who exerience pain, who grind or clench their teeth tightly. Injections in either side of these masseter muscles of the jaw can help to relax the muscle contractions, minimising their intensity and reducing the associated pain.
Stress incontinence happens when physical movement or activity — such as coughing, sneezing, running or heavy lifting — puts pressure (stress) on your bladder. The most common causes of stress incontinence are childbirth, body ageing and menaopause. If you have stress incontinence, you may feel embarrassed, isolate yourself, or limit your work and social life. With treatment, you'll likely be able to manage stress incontinence and improve your overall well-being. We offer the BTL Emsella Chair which uses the same HIFEM technology as EMsculpt to cause deep pelvic floor muscle stimulation and restoration of the neuromuscular control. A quick and painless treatment, you simply need to sit, fully clothed on the 'happy chair' for 30 minutes. Improvements can be seen after just one session, but a course of 4-6 is recommended for best results.
Acne can be frustrating and even once you have got it under control, it can leave you with nasty scarring which can massively effect your self-esteem. We have a range of treatments which can be used to help reduce it, including Fraxel, a laser skin resurfacing treatment, and ULTRAcel, our award-winning skin tighening treatment which can use Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling (FRM) to deeply penetrate the skin to promote collagen production to smooth and rejuventate the skin surface.
Micro Fat Transfer
Micro fat transfer (or fat grafting) is a more long-lasting option than fillers to recreate volume that have dissolved in the face. The process involves harvesting fat cells from other parts of the body, purifying them, and then injecting them into the treatment site. With Mr Glochin, this is done to increase the volume in areas such as the cheeks, lips, or age lines on the neck or nasolabial folds. Fat transfer can also help reduce the appearance of pitted acne scars. The results of these volumizing fat injections are very natural because it does not involve the use of any foreign or synthetic injectables. As a revolutionary in this fat transfer technique Mr Golchin meticulously treats your face from top to bottom to provide full facial rejuvenation.

Hair Loss Treatment
Hair loss occurs when the hair follicle shrinks and weakens at the root of the hair shaft and can be influenced by genetics, stress, hormonal changes, ageing, illness and more. We offer AQ Skin Solutions Hair Complex+ which is a pharmaceutical grade serum that targets hair loss conditions.
It is designed to restore healthy hair matrix production by nourishing hair follicles with selective natural human growth factors that are present in healthy, younger hair. These factors may promote a normal growth cycle that can lead to healthier, thicker, and more full-looking hair.
PRP Injections for the Knee
With Professor Schoettle
Knees are the largest joint in the body and can therefore suffer a number of traumatic and inflammatory injuries. Knee pain and injuries, can be treated with stem cell therapy and blood plasma (PRP) injections. Therapy with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can delay or avoid the need for knee surgery. The treatments are minimally invasive, can relieve inflammation, stop the progression of arthritic damage and repair joint cartilage. The recovery time is also much shorter than during surgery.
We are delighted to be working with The Knee Specialist, Professor Philip Schoettle, one of the world's leading physicians in regenerative medicine and the use of stem cell therapy to support the natural processes of your body in the treatment of injuries, degenerative and chronic diseases.
